So I started a new job about 7 weeks ago and am still just getting to know a lot of the people I deal with in other departments. One co-worker (Lets call him Jim) I have meet once before and he seems nice. Yesterday he impressed me.
He is originally from Country X, but has lived in country Y for a few years now. (I am a native of country Y and also live here). We were talking at the coffee station yesterday and he mentioned his parents are visiting from Country X and staying with him. I asked how long they were staying and his reply was "as long as there are no fights". He mentioned he knew there would be issues and he told them up front (before they came) that if the fights got bad he was sending them home and escorting them to the airport personally.
After years of reading E-hell and hearing reading about putting the principals into place it was a refreshing change of pace.
